I've been in the startup game for over 20 years now. I've lent to you, mentored you, worked for you, and I'm even one myself. And here's what I know to be true; most of us are not being real with ourselves or each other about our finances.


Listen, I've made my share of mistakes (and continue to make them). I've even survived a bankruptcy. If you think you’re the only one who doesn't understand valuation multiples, EBITDA, convertible debentures, or promissory notes, you're not alone.


Nail the Numbers is your opportunity to speak up or listen in, your choice. Either way, I'm banking on our candid conversations making a real difference to you and your business.


Looking forward to kicking off 2016 with you. It's going to be a great year!
